Access 2000 Recordsets

Access 2000 Recordsets

Access 2000 Recordsets

I have made an application in Access 2000, and want to use DAO to add some records behind the scenes.  I have done this many times before with no problem, using Access 97.
My code is as follows:

dim db as database
dim rs as recordset
set db=CurrentDB
set rs=db.openrecordset("Customers", dbopendynaset)

On the last line I get a type mismatch error.  I made sure to include the reference to Microsoft DAO 3.6 in the Access database.  Can anyone tell me what I'm missing.  I appreciate it.  Thanks.

RE: Access 2000 Recordsets

Do you still have a reference to the ADO library? If possible, remove it. Otherwise, change your Dim statements to:
    Dim db As DAO.Database
    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
